THE BIG SLEEP Blu-ray Review

February 13, 2016 – The Warner Archive Collection Blu-ray of THE BIG SLEEP gives tough guy and film noir fans what they want, a much-improved HD scan of the Bogie-Bacall classic, with a great soundtrack that makes gunshots seem especially loud and nails every Max Steiner cue. All those elaborate exterior/interior sets look much better when properly timed, with the added contrast range of Blu-ray. The digital cleanup and restoration is first rate.
